Meeting Rita is the third episode of Season 1 of Mako Mermaids.


Still trying to find a way to remove Zac's powers, the mermaids follow Zac to school. At the school, the girls accidentally cause a water fountain to erupt, forcing Zac to run away from his girlfriend, Evie, to hide his secret. The school's principal, Rita, witnesses the whole scene and confronts the girls. She notices Sirena's Moon Ring and confiscates it. The girls follow Rita home to try and take the ring back and discover that Rita, too, is a mermaid.
